News Spotlight From climate change to your Sunday fry: Why hydrogen rocks

The Climate Change Act commits our Government to reducing the UK’s greenhouse gas emissions by at least 80% of 1990 levels. Pretty challenging stuff. And it’s got to happen by 2050. One initiative that could deliver on this promise is de-carbonising the gas grid by replacing natural gas with hydrogen.

Our Team

Bob Boughton

Bob Boughton

Commissioning Engineer


Bob became an Associate of QEM in March 2014 having spent the past few years working for both contractor and client on Wales & West Utilities projects. Bob supervises various projects at different phases, but his main responsibility is as Commissioning Engineer where he writes the majority of non-routine procedures, covering all pressure ranges. He stands as the competent person on site during the non-routine operations and commissions and is also responsible for the issuing and authorising of permits to work and forms of authority. Given his wealth of experience Bob is involved in advising Project Leads and the NGN Operations Manager regarding technical and mechanical issues

Bob started his working life in the collieries of South Wales, working his way up from apprentice level to district overman. In 1980 he left mining for the gas industry, and since then has built up a wealth of experience in the supervision and management of pipeline and AGI construction and commissioning. 

Bob is a sports fan, confessing that these days he watches more than he plays although he does still enjoy a round of golf now and again. He loves to travel and has always had a keen interest in history, particularly the industrial revolution. One day Bob would like to combine these passions and follow the path that Victorian writer George Borrow took in his 1862 travel journal, Wild Wales.
